Australian residents can now pay bills with bitcoin at more than 3,500 national post offices.
The firm Bitcoin.com.au, aimed at promoting cryptocurrencies to mainstream audiences, announced a partnership with the local Australia Post.
The collaboration makes it so Australian residents can purchase bitcoin effortlessly at 3,500 national post offices.
This collaboration is due to a partnership with Blueshyft and it also gives Australians the ability to acquire BTC. The Australia Post believes it has been at the forefront of innovation since its creation 200 years ago.
Adding BTC support to over 3,500 Australia Post stores across the country will add more accessibility to those living in the country.
“Australia Post has for a long time played an important role in the community to make services accessible to all,” Susan Nicholson, Australia Post’s Head of Business & Government Financial Services stressed.
Nicholson further said: “Post Billpay service has been one of Australia’s most trusted bill payment methods for over 20 years, and we’re pleased to now provide the ability for Bitcoin to pay bills at post office, which will come with a product enhancement that offers ID verification and real-time bill payment confirmation back to the biller.
The May 4, 2020 announcement gives Australians step-by-step instructions on how to leverage the Australia Post for bitcoin purchases.
